Kelly Burchard – The NeighbourhoodI Love You

 While their album came out earlier this year, The Neighbourbood’s I Love You is just now making its way into my Top 25 Most Played iTunes playlist. Their motley crew of electric, hip-hop and indie rock sound is something that is hard not to like. All the tracks on I Love You flow into each other so smoothly, and while this isn’t necessarily the album that makes you want to get up and dance, it is definitely worth a listen to, if you haven’t already.

What Albums Are We Listening To This Week?

Thursday, November 14th, 2013 by Billy Dries

Beach_House_-_BloomKait Connaughton – Beach House – Bloom

By no means is Bloom a new release, but it is by far one of my most listened to albums in recent memory. Boasting the emerging ethereal/dream pop genre, Baltimore’s very own Beach House transcend the musical experience via their use of synthesized instruments and deep, emotion-fueled, whispering female vocals. Pick up this album and change your music listening experience; you won’t regret it.

Review: Glass Animals EP – Glass Animals

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013 by Margaret Jokoh

thGlass Animals EP

Glass Animals

Grade: B+

Harvest Record’s recording artist, released their 4 track self titled EP, “Glass Animals.” The album has a haunting/spacey sound. The indie pop band makes use of synthesizers and artificial sounds to bring each songs to life. Dave Barley’s voice definitely keeps the listener captured and wanting to listen more and more. The album is very innovative and captures the essence of who Glass Animals are and is a great indicator of what’s to come from them in the future.

Review: Adding up the wasted hours – The Lonely Forest

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 by Margaret Jokoh

The Lonely Forest

Grade: A

The Lonely Forest, an indie rock band from Anacortes, Washington releases their fourth studio album,  Adding up the Wasted Hours on October 15, 2013. The album is a mix of indie rock and the influence of synthesizers to give it a unique sound. The introduction of synthesizers really enhances the sound of each and every song. The Lonely Forest though does not stray to far from from its indie roots. Adding up the Wasted Hours is similar to music from the Bombay Bicycle Club and Vampire Weekend. Every song on the album is a new journey that the listener is taken on. (more…)

Review: Linkin Park – Recharged

Monday, October 28th, 2013 by Margaret Jokoh

Recharged_ItunesRecharged

Linkin Park

Grade: D

The rock band, Linkin Park released its second remix album, Recharged, on October 29, 2013. The album fell short from the band’s usual numetal sound. It was manufactured, and not as organic as the band’s usual sound. The remix album sounds very dubstep, which usually would be a great thing to add to a rock sound. (more…)

WLOY Staff Picks 10.20.13

Nick_Drake_Pink_MoonKathleen McKeveny– “Pink Moon”- Nick Drake – 

Because he made the whole sullen singer songwriter/turtle neck wearing/ sexy lanky guy thing work the first time around. Those songs are just the best of their kind, no matter how many wannabe Nick Drakes there are out there, he’s still nuuuuumero uno :0
